With the start of the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour for Netflix, Marvel and Netflix talked about their plans moving forward. The goal of the two comic and streaming giants is to release a new Marvel Netflix property every six months. Some of these will be new seasons of continuously running programs, while others will be new properties altogether, such their newest show AKA Jessica Jones.
All of this is leading up to a Netflix Crossover Event, The Defenders. It seems to be that Marvel is going to do for Netflix and streaming TV what they have already done in movies. Unfortunately, no actual schedule was released and they seemed to be hinting at the fact that only certain series would receive multiple seasons, while others would work more as stand-alones. That determination will probably be made on a basis of how well each individual series is received.
There is still a lot of vagueness circling the Internet about what is going on. For instance, there still no set launch date for Jessica Jones or what the next series after that will be. There is very little confirmation of any type for anything, right now. However, Variety did report that Jessica Jones will debut in 2015, but no exact date was given. That means we could be waiting until December for our next small screen return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We do know that Daredevil is currently filming its second season, and with Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal playing the Punisher.
There are even rumors that Frank Castle could receive his own stand-along series, but all of that seems little more than speculation by Hitflix. Only time will tell, but for right now, all we at The NYRD can do is bide our time with baited breath until AKA Jessica Jones, and the return of Daredevil.
